Letter: What Obama’s afraid of

Jane Imber
Wolcott, CO Colorado

Why is Senator Obama reluctant to condemn his pastor’s support of Louis Farrakhan? He was quick enough to speak out when the issue was patriotism. Does he believe that anti-semitism is not as reprehensible as other forms of bigotry? Does he think that virulent anti-semitic screeds are an appropriate entertainment for a Sunday morning? Is he so naïve or complacent enough to believe that one man’s voice in support of Farrakhan doesn’t matter? Is he afraid of losing the anti-semitic vote?

Before you cast your vote, demand that he take a moral stand. We must not become a nation of sheep so desperate for change that we would follow bright and shiny platitudes straight into a morally bankrupt slaughterhouse.
